Combined Heat and Power

The simultaneous generation of power and heat in one plant is called combined heat and power (CHP) generation or cogeneration. Compared to separate production of heat and power in conventional power plants and individual heating systems, CHP units achieve an up to 40 percent higher efficiency. There are large and small plants operating on the CHP principle.

Energy Performance Contracting

Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) is a partnership between a public authority or an enterprise and an energy service company (ESCO) aiming to reduce the cost of energy supply. At its own economic risk, the energy service provider as the ESCO makes all investments which are necessary and gives an energy saving guarantee. The partners then share the cost savings. The Senate of Berlin has successfully been implementing the model since 1996.
